How Donors Trust distributed millions to anti-climate groups

altRecipients included some of the best-known thinktanks on the right. The American Enterprise Institute, which is closely connected to the Republican party establishment and has a large staff of scholars, received more than $17m in untraceable donations over the years, the record show.

But relatively obscure organisations did not go overlooked. The Heartland Institute, virtually unknown outside the small world of climate politics, received $13.5m from the Donors Trust.

Discrete Analysers by Thermo Fisher Scientific

altThermo Fisher Scientific (Finland) has provided solutions for the water and waste water laboratories for over 20 years with the family of AquakemTM and GalleryTM analysers. These analysers utilise discrete cell technology which significantly reduces analysis time. Applications are based on photometric measurements. Easy-to-use analysers are ready for immediate analysis, start-up and shut down protocols are automated and once loaded, they automate all necessary steps, providing a walk-away time from two to four hours.

New PureGas Ensures Exceptional Carrier Gas Quality

altThe new SERVOPRO PureGas gas purifier from Servomex (UK) offers the near-total purification of carrier gases for Gas Chromatography (GC) and other analytical applications.

For a gas chromatograph to perform reliably with high levels of sensitivity, the supplied carrier gas must be of the highest quality. With Ultra High Purity (UHP) gases expensive to bottle and difficult to trans-fill without contamination, the SERVOPRO PureGas enables users to purify gases onsite at the point of use, minimising the risk of gas contamination.

Cryogenic Grinding was Never more Convenient or Efficient

altFor size reduction of sample materials which cannot be processed at room temperature, the CryoMill from RETSCH (Germany) is the ideal choice. An integrated cooling system ensures that the grinding jar is continually cooled with liquid nitrogen before and during the grinding process. Thus the sample is embrittled and volatile components are preserved. An Autofill System provides liquid nitrogen in the required amount so that the user never gets into direct contact with the LN2 which makes operating the mill particularly safe.

Efficient Analysis of High Boiling Point Compounds

altShimadzu (Germany), one of the worldwide specialist manufacturers of analytical instrumentation, has launched the HS-20 gas chromatography headspace sampler for accurate analysis of an even wider range of volatile compounds with boiling points ranging from low to high. The HS-20 heats liquid or solid samples sealed in a container to a specific temperature, and injects the volatile compounds diffusing into the gaseous phase into a GC or a GCMS. These systems are widely used in the fields of environmental and pharmaceutical applications as well as in materials and food products analysis and forensics. The HS-20 will support these analyses particularly in testing and inspection organisations.
